Teaching & Learning

Bannerman Road Community Academy provides an exciting, broad and balanced curriculum that is tailored to the needs of our children and families. Our personalised learning curriculum supports and challenges all of our pupils to achieve their best and become life-long learners.

  • Recognise high achieving students and ensure they are given opportunities to stretch and challenge their learning
  • Plan opportunities for students to develop their personal potential
  • Establish an agreed range of policies and practices to guarantee a consistent approach towards learning and teaching in every classroom.
  • Involve all staff in developing and improving the quality of learning and teaching
  • Provide all staff with developmental opportunities to extend and enhance their range of teaching and repertoires
  • Develop staff to deliver skills beyond their own subject specialism and incorporate cross curricular initiatives
  • Identify pupils’ achievements and areas for improvement, through rigorous monitoring of progress and to plan appropriate interventions to enhance learning

Meeting individual needs: personalised learning

At Bannerman Road Community Academy we recognise that all children are individuals who learn at different rates and have different strengths and weaknesses. Our aim is to provide learning where all children progress and achieve at their age group level. For those children who are excelling in their learning then we aim to deepen their knowledge further. We also provide opportunities for the more able pupils to enrich their learning further, we have taken them to English events with pupils from other schools where they met a poet and were supported to write poems for example.
